Dead City Radio Lyrics

Billy Dolores posted a link to a short film named Ah Pook Is Here which features recordings by William S. Burroughs from his Dead City Radio album. You can watch the whole film over at zed. The tracks used are:
4. Ah Pook the Destroyer or Brion Gysin's All-Purpose Bedtime Story
9. No More Stalins, No More Hitlers
17. Ich Bin von kopf auf Liebe Eingestellt
Now interestingly I tried searching for transcriptions of the other tracks on Dead City Radio but I can hardly find any. Several webpages offer snippets but not one page has them all, which is a shame really because most texts are absolutely wonderful.

So I tried putting together the lyrics myself. Found some online, transcribed a few others. I'm only now missing one really big one, the fifth and longest track of the album "After Dinner Conversation" (12min). If anyone can help me out with that one, mail me.

You other cut up fans can download the texts here (txt doc, 20kb). I'm missing a few words here and there, so corrections are welcome too.

In the meanwhile I'll post the text of my favorite song: Love Your Enemies.
